At the risk of boring you folks, I'll put in a plug for another nice route. Here's what it looks like:

Thanks for posting this I was looking at this area the last couple of days after reading the Warner's rout description.
My brother-in-law wants to do one last canoe trip, age and health are catching up. What we want is some nice as remote as possible place with little portaging where we can mess around in a canoe. He fishes I paddle and explore.
Would this be a good spot for a couple of old but experienced Geezers.

Thanks Richard W.

Sure I can relate to that!
From Bisco you only have two easy portages into Mozhabong. Just give yourselves enough time to wait out bad wind conditions.

I'd like to second this being a fantastic route. I'd also add that if you are a terribly unsuccessful fisher like myself, spend some time fishing on Gilden. You absolutely can't miss catching a few bass.

Erhard, Kudos to you! Another awesome trip log. I can barely wait to do a canoe trip, I'm so pumped. I had no idea there was an Eagles nest on that hoseshoe shaped island,, and i've been by there many many times. Next time I'll pay closer attention for sure. Take care!

Very useful information and hardly boring.

Erhard, there is indeed a trail from Earl's Bay over to Norma, I walked it last summer.

Looking outside, I think we have extended summer. :cry:

But, a great route to think about. :) To echo everyone else - Thanks Erhard.

Thank you - that is useful.

From Bisco, the route down Indian and Mozhabong thus allows for a straight down/up trip, or one could do one of a set of loops, the shortest one returns via the Hogsback Channel to Bisco, or via Earl's Bay to Mishap Lake and via Mishap Creek, or the next one from Metagama Bay to Lamprey L and Mishap Creek, or the largest one down to the south end of Mozhabong and return via Dusty, Sinaminde and up its creek to Winnie, with a portage back into the Mishap watershed.

The one other possibility would be to cut across Miles Lake to Sinaminde L, from Irene Bay on Mozhabong. But I don't know whether such portages exist, I only have walked form Sinaminde L to Miles Lake along some fisherman's trail - so "maybe" the whole link exists........
